Scott Barry Kaufman is a humanistic psychologist exploring the depths of human potential. He has taught courses on intelligence, creativity, and well-being at Columbia University, NYU, the University of Pennsylvania, and elsewhere.
In 2015, he was named one of “50 groundbreaking scientists who are changing the way we see the world” by Business Insider. In this session, we discuss the new science of self actualisation, a bold re-imagining of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, and how you can use these insights to realise more of your potential and live a creative, fulfilled, and connected life.

This episode is sponsored by our upcoming Day on Burnout Online Conference, taking place on February 27th, 2022.
Burnout is a state of mental, emotional, and physical exhaustion, affecting 57% of the UK population. If it’s not managed properly, it can lead to feelings of detachment, cynicism, and ineffectiveness – many of the symptoms associated with clinical depression. Recent years have seen sharp increases in those experiencing it, with one survey reporting a 9% increase in 2021, compared with pre-Covid numbers in 2019.
So for this event, we’ve brought together three world-leading experts who will share with you:
— Science-based strategies for working with burnout and compassion fatigue (Françoise Mathieu)
— Dopamine: the secret mechanism underlying almost all addictive behaviour, and how to get it to work for you, rather than against you (Dr Anna Lembke)
— The Productivity Trap: why we have to stop, and how a healthy amount of ‘doing nothing’ can lead to heightened levels of creativity, wellbeing, and a more fulfilling existence (Professor Josh Cohen)
By attending live, you can interact with the speakers in the Q&A sessions, connect with like-minded participants during the conference, get CPD certification and lifetime access to the recordings from the sessions.
